Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-07) will vote in favor of Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan's 2012 budget, known as the Path to Prosperity.

"I applaud Chairman Ryan for his bold and responsible budget; the first responsible budget the House has passed in some time. Under this plan, we will cut federal spending for $6.2 trillion dollars, put our economy back on track, pay down the federal debt, and by reforming Medicare and Medicaid, make them solvent for future generations. We have spent the last several weeks consumed with cutting billions, today in one stroke we have put America on track to save trillions."
